Loop, and "loop back and forth" are grayed out in Quicktime Pro running under OS 10.7.4. This is incredibly annoying. Releasing buggy software is disrespectful to the community. Appl is going seriously downhill. The problem is the 10.7.4 update to the quicktime framework. How shabby can you get, Apple?
When I try to play downloaded movies in different formats such as AVI and MP4 .... it tells me that I dont have the proper "codex". I have been to the support link it sends me but all the other downloads will not able me to play movies...
I am now having problems playing SD movies across all my applications, they look pixillated. I never had this problem until I updated to 10.6.4. I didn't update iTunes and was/am afraid to do any more updates.
I'm trying to play movies that I've downloaded from Frostwire and every time they open up in Quick Time it says is update is needed and a blank safari page opens. Probably should mention this is my first Mac and I've had it for a total of 6 hours.
I am running Snow Leopard and have QT 7 and QT X installed... Ever since I got my Mac last year I have had problems with Quicktime movies paying in Firefox (I've tolerated it thus far, but am now wanting to fix it). Movies tend to play "okay" if I don't touch the controller (pause, scrub ff, rw), but if I do, the movie lags and bogs down Firefox until it becomes unstuck. I often times can't even close the tab until it becomes unstuck. The same movies in Safari don't do this and play fine. Anyone else experience this? I've noticed Safari uses the Quicktime X style controller and Firefox uses the old style - is there any way to force Firefox to use the newer style/plugin? Please don't respond with "Well, why don't you just use Safari, then." My answer is: "because it lacks the add-ons I want to use."
I recently got a Macbook pro OS X Lion and for the past few months have had problems with trying to run movies on Quicktime 10.1. My videos files are usually .AVI but when I try to click on it quick time opens and then tells me that it can't read the file. I've search the internet for answer and have tried a lot of different solutions that others have had success on (including updating Perian and trying to convert the .AVI file to .MOV) yet I still have had no such luck.

I love the options Quicktime offers me in screen recording. Before I went over to the "Mac-Side" I played around with different Windows-based screen recording software but couldnt find any that offered seamless recording. Quicktime gives me just that. My problem, however, is this. Whenever I try to record a movie or video clip with screen recording, all I can see of the video is a bunch of white and grey blocks. Is there an option I need to click or a specific resolution I need to record in so I can clip parts of videos?
When I play movies using QuickTime player, I see the picture but hear no sound. The sound will appear for about two seconds and then cut off completely. I don't understand what is causing this problem and I have tried to update it with no avail.
QuickTime Player (we have version 10.1) seems to play movies at a minimum movie size of 480 pixels wide. Smaller movies (say 80, 200, etc. pixels wide) get enlarged to 480 pixels wide when played, making them blurry. Movie Inspector confirms the original size of these movies (of various formats) and that the current player window size is 480 pixels wide. They can't be viewed any smaller (either by the window resize handle or from the View menu).We frequently make moves from slices through small sub-volumes of 3D reconstructions and it doesn't seem that this latest version of QuickTime Player can be used to view these small-sized movies any longer. Am I missing a preference or checkbox somewhere in QuickTime Player?
I have an external drive to store all my movies since I have no room on my iMac. I'd also like to watch my movies on other computers and I was wondering if there's a movie player that can be installed on the external drive to watch some movies like (.mkv) and so on.
Digital movies play just fine on my camera, a NIkon Coolpix but once I import them to either quicktime or windows media player they do not play smoothly. Any ideas why or what I can do to correct this?

I had a bunch of movies that took with my digital camera that were always imported into iPhoto when I transferred my pictures into it. I used to just be able to click on them in iPhoto and the movie would open up and play. Now it seems that my movies are gone and all that I have of my movies is the first frame as a picture and nothing else. Their file extensions used to say .mov but now are .jpg. I've tried changing the extension back to .mov but no movie is there and the file sizes are not what a movie should be. I'm running Snow Leopard on a 13" Macbook Pro with newest version of iPhoto. I have quicktime X and Quicktime 7 installed.
I was trying to upgrade my girlfriend imac g3 500mhz from os 10.2.8 to 10.3 . The installer soon told me that I needed a firmware upgrade and quit, and restarted the computer. I then got stuck in a bit of a loop and had to use a paperclip to get the disk out. Now when the imac is started, for a couple of seconds a small icon of the os face (?) appears and flashes to a small icon of a folder with a question mark on it (that scared me) but then is seems to start up and run as normal! I've turned the computer on a couple of times now and it does exactly the same thing every time. This flashing image is worrying me, I've given up on the idea of installing os10.3 but have I damaged this IMac?
I created a slideshow in Keynote and imported it to IDVD to burn it. I want a 3 second transition on each slide. My show is 83 slides, so run time is approx 4 minutes. I set slideshow to run in a loop.Here's my problem: I want to have 9 songs (approx 36 minutes run time) on my slideshow. After the show runs once and starts to loop, I'd like it to continue with the next songs not start the audio back at the first song.
I have several HD videos from my Sony NEX-3 camera that will not play very well from within iMovie. They freeze up, or run in slow motion while the sound track continues without any problem. I've seen other related comments on this forum, but no one has suggested a fix yet. I can play my clips just fine from the finder menu using "Quick Look". Other videos from the same camera work, what has changed?

Has anyone else experienced anything like this with their MBP? I woke my MBP from sleep as I went to do something on it and I found a checkerboard-like (or interlacing) pattern displayed across the screen. That is, I could see bits and pieces of Firefox, the desktop, the dock, etc. in little rectangles across the screen with the bits and pieces scattered all over the place (like puzzle pieces strewn everywhere). I wasn't entirely surprised as I had seen a friend of mine have a similar problem when waking his MBP from sleep. I didn't have time to deal with a restart, so I went to my gf's Windoze machine (perhaps what follows is my MBP taking revenge for going off when times got tough and cheating on it with a *gasp* PC!!???). when I returned to my machine later on, it sounded like it was rebooting itself as I walked in the room. Then about 15-20 seconds later, it did the same thing. When I opened it up, the same checkerboard pattern appeared as it started to reboot, then it went to a completely blue screen, and finally went black (as in turned-off black). After that, it started this same process over again and stayed stuck in that loop until I held down the power button to turn it completely off. I called Apple (still under 90-day Apple Care since I got the machine in April) and did all of the troubleshooting tasks that they talked me through. It is apparently a hardware issue, as I feared, and I will have to send it off to have it repaired. (At least is sending the pre-paid box for me to ship it to them).
I've had snow leopard for a few weeks now, and it's been unexpectedly slow for that duration of time, especially considering how much faster it's supposed to be.
Just for the record, I deleted all the Nikon software off my computer a few months ago. So I found jp.co.nikon.NikonPtpEnum, and deleted it. That didn't help. I then deleted any files I could find in my ~/library/preferences folder. That didn't help. I reinstalled some of the nikon software from the original instillation CD, and then used the uninstall software that comes with it to wipe my system. I even looked through all copies of any file entitled "com.apple.launchd" I could find, and looked for a reference to jp.co.nikon.NikonPtpEnum. Nothing. Any ideas? It's really slowing my system down, so I'd love to get rid of it.
My G3 keeps repeatedly rebooting. It goes through the loading process, but when it comes time to give you the desktop, it shuts down and restarts all over againl. As it boots up, a double image that you can't read comes up on the monitor, along with a solid color bar that separates the desktop image in two. I have two internal harddrives and changed it to reboot from the second harddrive, thinking that might be the problem. Immediately after doing this, it rebooted fine one time, but now is caught in the reboot loop again. When I startup from the install disk, the image is fine on the screen, as is the startup itself and when I run disk doctor, it says both drives are fine. I homeschool and would like to keep using all of the classic educational software on it for my 5 year old. It's running 9.2.2, 256mb memory 9gig drive is current booting drive, other one is 2gig.
